Hakoiri♡Musume Think Outside the Box to Produce Their First MV “Hohoemi to Haru to One Piece”!
Aspiring actress idol group Hakoiri♡Musume has produced their first MV for their first original song “Hohoemi to Haru to One Piece”!
Making a name for themselves in the idol scene with their refreshing visuals, theatrics, and covers of J-pop classics since 2014, Hakoiri♡Musume was able to make this project possible thanks to the warm support of their fans. Turning to crowdfunding in order to raise the 800,000 yen ($6-7,000 US) budgeted for making the MV, Hakoiri♡Musume almost doubled that amount and ended up receiving more than 1.5 million yen ($12-13,000 US) in pledges! Here is the video that they posted on their crowdfunding page.
Expanding on the theatrical “Gekidan hakomusu” portion of their live performances, where they enter the world of the songs that they sing, simply making a studio dance shot MV was not enough to fulfill the vision that Hakoiri♡Musume had for “Hohoemi to Haru to One Piece”! They were aiming to make it more like a short movie.
Filmed over 2 days in a studio and on location in Chichibu, Saitama with a RED 4K camera, the MV is scheduled to be premiered at a special screening for the fans who contributed funds to the film on June 28th with a release on YouTube following shortly after. Hakoiri♡Musume may not yet be a name that that well known but, with such a commitment to their vision, they seem poised for the coming “age of quality”.
